Nearly eight out of 10 Chinese workers became more stressed in the past year, a new survey has found.

The survey by Regus, a global workplace-solutions provider, recently polled more than 16,000 workers in 80 countries.

Seventy-five percent of Chinese workers polled said that their stress levels had risen in the past year, according to the survey.

It found that 48 percent of workers globally felt growing pressure in the past year.

The smallest increases in stress worldwide were in Australia and the Netherlands, where just 38 percent and 40 percent of workers said they had experienced more stress.

Chinese workers' stress mainly comes from work, individual financial status and clients, the survey found.

In China, workers in Shanghai and Beijing felt the highest rise in stress in the past year, it said.

In Shanghai, 80 percent of workers said their stress levels rose. In Beijing, the figure is 67 percent.
